Versatility rules


As you know Ruby is a very versatile dog. She:

  • Is able to eat both dead and alive food
  • Can squeeze through very small spaces to get what she wants
  • Is adaptable and but also predictable
  • Can jump up at people without no command and sit down immediately on command
  • Sleep on any surface
  • Be friends with the loveliest and most savage of dogs.

Ruby has been awarded again for her versatility by We live in a flatΒ and Suzie – thanks so much for bestowing the Versatile Blogger Award on her.

Ruby has already passed this award on before so this time will restrict herself to sharing seven things about her family who:

  • Live in a hundred year old house with a tiny back yard so the park is our playground
  • Cycle everywhere
  • Cook new recipes all the time and never share them with her (and who says you can’t be vegetarian AND a good cook?)
  • Love wilderness, trekking and travelling (I love my dogsitter which is good)
  • Grow most of their own veggies in the back yard (which is why I have no space and we use the park loads)
  • Are hardly ever at home at the same time except to sleep
  • Only have one other pet – a goldfish called Dash McSpeedy who is eight years old, enormously fat and eats almost as much as Ruby

      Yes! In this photo I’m doing some vociferous grooming with lots of gnawing noises…

    It sounds like the perfect life, I’m a bit jealous.

    • rubytheblacklabrador / Jul 30 2013 7:44 pm

      Me too – no care and no responsibility on Ruby’s part – it’s a dog’s life!

    Love the ‘Can jump up at people without no command’ …heheheh. Ruby, you’re adorable! Congrats on the award and well deserved to both you and Charlie. I would love to see Dash McSpeedy. πŸ˜€ *hugs*

      Thank you. Actually I have a great photo of Dash so will have to weave him in to a post one day…

    I like two-way food too. Dead or alive – my stomach will sort it out (via two-way system).

    Looking forward to seeing Dash. Neighbour has a fish pond in front yard. Fond of fish as swimming companions. I jump in the pond after a run around with my mate. They thought renovating pond, sitting it up higher off the ground may kerb my swim sessions with fish…. Hmmmm…. You taught me to do agility mum. I jump!

      I’d jump in too – what else is water there for? There are large carp in the ponds in the park (pests) and eels and I try to paw them but I don’t eat them if they’re alive – well not yet anyway πŸ™‚
